​If You Can't Bite, Don't Growl

This song is by Tommy Collins.

I whistled at a pretty girl on a corner down town
She saw me when I winked my eye and then she turned around
She came and took me by the arm, I told her I didn't mean no harm
She said to me with a certain kind of scowl

"If you don't mean a thing, don't whistle
If you can't bite, don't growl"

One night, I left the wife at home and went out with the boys
I was actin' like a dumb one and makin' a lot of noise
A go-go girl hold my hand, I said, "I can't, I'm a married man"
She said, "If you ain't gonna steal, you better not crawl"

Don't do-si-do with a go-go
If you can't bite, don't growl

I went home to the little wife and grabbed her at the door
I kissed her like a mad man and let out a lion roar
I jumped down from a chandelier and beat my chest
And said, "Come here"
She said, "If you can't haunt, you better not howl"

I'm [Incomprehensible] skitty and me and mama
If you can't bite, don't growl

I jumped down from a chandelier and beat my chest
And said, "Come here"
She said, "If you can't haunt, you better not howl"

I'm [Incomprehensible] skitty and me and mama
If you can't bite, don't growl
